New Old Shoes

I sometimes have a difficult time letting go. Take for instance my 10 year old Dansko sandals. They are so comphy and still in pretty good shape, I just can't get rid of them despite the hideous color green the have always been, and I only recently have been able to accept this fact. Oh what's a girl to do...?

So, I have of course a mountain of markers and pens and I decided that these shoes really could not get any worse.  I chose colors that were dark because it has to cover this greenish color. I am using a Pantone purple and a Prisma turquoise.

This would have been a good time for a before picture. Oppps, but you can still see some of the green I have to contend with!!

The turquoise turned out fairly green and splotchy which I am not thrilled with. The purple is kind of magenta which is nice. I would say the Pantone did a superior job to the Prismacolor. I suspect that Copics would be excellent as well.

I pride myself at being good at many things, I would have to say, that shoe modeling is not one of them.

 I am very happy with my new shoes! I am going to go wear them now and see if I get any compliments. Happy inking!
